  • Patent number: 8749839
    Abstract: Techniques and systems to enhance digital acquisition devices are presented. The enhancements are available to the user in local as well as in remote deployments yielding efficiency gains for a large variety of business processes. The quality enhancements are achieved efficiently by employing virtual reacquisition. The method of virtual reacquisition renders unnecessary the physical reacquisition of analog data in case the digital data obtained by the acquisition device are of insufficient quality. The method and system allows multiple users to access the same acquisition device for analog data. In some One or more users can virtually reacquire data provided by multiple analog or digital sources. The acquired raw data can be processed by each user according to his personal preferences and/or requirements. The preferred processing settings and attributes are determined interactively in real time as well as non real time, automatically and a combination thereof.

  • Publication number: 20140033307
    Abstract: A phishing classification model that detects a phishing website based on one or more feature vectors for the website is provided. The phishing classification model may operate on a server and may further select a website, generate a feature vector for a landing page of the website, create a feature vector for every iframe that is a descendent of the landing page, and derive a final feature vector from the feature vectors of the landing page and the descendent iframe pages. Further, machine learning techniques may be applied to generate, or train, a classification model based upon one or more known phishing websites. Based on the feature vector, the classification modeler may classify a website as either a phishing website or as a non-phishing website. Feedback in the form of human verification may further be incorporated.
